FUTONICS F-THETA LENSES

In addition to the industrial fiber laser systems, Futonics offers various F-Theta lenses for 2 µm lasers that can be purchased separately.

The new Futonics product line of F-theta lenses is based on crystal lenses made of zinc selenide and calcium fluoride. Effective focal lengths of 170 mm and 345 mm are available.
High-performance applications at a wavelength of 2 µm require absorption-free lens materials. Most quartz materials absorb due to intrinsic OH molecules at a wavelength of 2 µm. At several hundred watts of laser power, this residual absorption heats the lens and causes at least a distortion of the front heat waves. In extreme cases, the material even tears. Not so with the F-Theta lenses from Futonics.
